Birth of Atlantis

Some wonderful pictures of the construction of the space shuttle orbiter Atlantis, via space.com, with a hat tip to @F1Allan. Credit for all photos to Boeing. All pictures taken at the Rockwell International facility in Palmdale, CA. except those of the rollout.

I love that in many pictures the orbiter is a greenish gold color, as if they combined those icons of the 1970s: harvest gold and avocado green.

I've won a spot for the STS-135 NASA Tweetup. I'm going to try to document the experience.
